    Typical Argentina. First Stallman gets robbed in a university and now J-lo is robbed

    Argentines are all thieves and liars.

    Dear, dear, dear. A spinal x-ray is only indicated in acute back pain if there is a history of severe trauma (i.e. a fall from height etc.). Lopez has had needless exposure to radiation with an investigation that would yeild little information on her symptoms.

    If she had radicular pain referal then they could have al least gone for an MRI.

    What to they teach these Argie doctors?

    Hospitals in Argentina are SCARY! All the equipment looks like a 1950s sci-fi movie, paint is peeling, floors are dirty, I would NEVER get treated for anything serious in that country!
    BTW the import restrictions are keeping out syringes, gloves, sterile bandages, x-ray film...what are they going to do reuse them? Blech better off getting yourself back to the USA UK EU if you have a real problem.

    J Lo is quite nice, but “Cristina from the block” is much hotter =) Seriously, what an absurd anti-Argie article, surely she'd have got the back pain wherever she was, or do you think theres something in the air?!

    #5 - Many things are now sub-par in Argentina, but not their doctors. They are dedicated to helping the ill, and often at rates far below those in most developed countries.

    Jennifer my dear you just cant trust those blasted Argentinians why you had to go to that country is beyond my compression. Look Jenny these people have been trying to steal my country's islands for years so a little bit of bling that you had on you would have been no problem for them to steal, to them it would have been like a shoplifter in Harrods when the lights went out because of a power cut. Quick Fernando fill your boots before she comes back, and they did.

    The whole country is corrupt, I said to Obama the other day for goodness sake bammy keep your hand on your wallet if you ever have to go down there, the moment you take your hand of your wallet it will be gone. He said Dave I even keep my hand on my wallet when that fellow Timerman comes calling at my home in Washington. I said to Bammy you know what old son, you know that new Mrs Ambassador the one that they sent to London the other week! well that crazy bint even pinched my bum in front of Samantha, they just cant keep their hands to themselves can they Bammy.

    #8 “well that crazy bint even pinched my bum in front of Samantha”

    This is why you never should make too much fun about others

    Why doesn't MERCOPRESS report on this story like the so widely reported the Jennifer Lopez one?

    The foreigners on this section were all in a frenzy making fun of Argentina in that story. How about it now!


    ChrisR, suck it!!

    Glad to see you are back, I do hope that you feel better after your short break.

    However, given your comment to me it looks as if I am going to be disappointed.
